Objects are important. Our objects speak for us, tell stories about us, show others who we are. From the cup you use to drink your morning coffee to the pillowcase you rest your head on last thing at night, I believe the objects we choose to surround ourselves with should enhance our everyday routines.
The essence of my business is to explore our relationship with
everyday objects. I’m interested in the significance of objects that are
seen throughout history and found in all cultures - milagros, lucky
charms, amulets - which provide solace, support and healing to us in
trying times. It is important to me that my work connects on an
emotional level, to foster beautiful relationships that bring joy and
pleasure and make people smile.
These values and connections between people & objects, creativity
& culture and heritage & humour all feed into my work with
cultural venues, whether it’s a bespoke product for a museum shop, a
product launch, Museum Late event or a family activity workshop. I
playfully re-imagine and re-present everyday objects and places,
transforming them into thoughtful and unexpected products or
experiences, inviting people to reassess their relationships with them.
What I can do for your cultural venue
As an Artist and Designer I can help you to stand out in a competitive market by bringing a fresh, thoughtful and fun perspective to your stories, illuminating all that is great, distinctive and cherished. I’d love to design a product for your shop, create an event for a Museum Late or design and deliver a learning workshop activity drawing on your rich heritage. I will always make the most of what is unique about your place and space. l will work with you to enhance your brand - creating an exciting buzz that brings new life to your collections, attracts new audiences and encourages deeper engagement. I will give your visitors a valuable and lasting reminder of their experience to take away with them.
Product of Your Environment is a 'one-woman-band' studio founded by Artist & Designer Rebecca Chitty, an MA graduate of Central St.Martins with a background in Illustration, Art Direction and Set Design. Launched in 2006, her first product the ‘Exorcise Book’ was immediately snapped up by the uber-cool Colette store in Paris. Rebecca's company has evolved from designing and developing own-brand home and gift products - stocked in Tate Modern and the Design Museum amongst others - to specialising in creating bespoke product ranges, events and workshops for cultural venues, and licensing ideas to major gift companies to develop into products that sell worldwide.
